2023-2024 Back to School Message

A message from Bill Sullivan, interim principal:

I am looking forward to being the Principal of Oyster River Middle School for the 2023-2024 school year. I consider myself fortunate to have worked at ORMS for the past twenty-two years, eleven of them as a 5th grade teacher and eleven as the Assistant Principal. 

I am proud to be an Oyster River community member. In fact, I have lived in the district since I graduated from UNH in 1991. My family and I live in Madbury and could not be happier. I am excited about the upcoming school year, working with Mrs. Carter, leading a wonderful staff, and working each day with such excellent students. 

We are going to do some great things as a school community this year. Go Bobcats!

A message from Alida Carter, interim assistant principal:

It is with great enthusiasm that I am stepping into my new role as Interim Assistant Principal at the Oyster River Middle School. I am passionate about education and believe that my 23 years of teaching at the middle school level have prepared me well for this role.

I have loved working as a Physical Education teacher at ORMS as well as navigating middle school as a parent of three daughters ages 10, 13, and 15. I understand the challenges and opportunities presented by this unique stage of life, both as a teacher and as a parent.

I look forward to working alongside Mr. Sullivan, our students, staff, parents and guardians to create a thriving educational community!
